Dungeon Keeper

01title.jpg
Bullfrog 1997
Genre: Strategy
Rating: 6/6
Licence: Commercial
System: PC

In this game, you can be the bad guy for a change and stand up against the good guys. In the admittedly cynical Dungeon Keeper, you become an underground dungeon master whose goal it is to conquer the world above by defeating and destroying the reigning knight. Because this goal cannot be reached all alone, you have to recruit and train as many monsters as possible in your dungeon.


Magic Carpet

Bullfrog / Electronic Arts 1994
Genre: Action
Rating: 4/6
Licence: Commercial
System: PC

There are only so many excuses for 3D shooters. Magic Carpet at least has a tiny bit of originality: You're a sorcerer flying around on a magic carpet (oh, really?) trying to take over the world. This works by collecting mana and storing it in your fortress. Once you've collected enough, you can proceed to the next level.


Populous

Bullfrog 1989
Genre: Strategy
Rating: 5.5/6
Licence: Commercial
System: PC

Maybe one of the first true real-time-strategy games Populous quickly became one of the most famous games of its time and today is a deserved classic. As the god of your people your goal is to defeat another god with his respective people. To achieve this you can alter the landscape and send plagues upon your enemy.


Populous II: Trials of the Olympian Gods

Bullfrog 1993
Genre: Strategy
Rating: 5/6
Licence: Commercial
System: PC

Populous 2 is a brilliant successor to the first Populous game which evolves the innovative game concept even further. Again you're a god leading your people to victory by changing landscape and casting various spells but this time you're not just any god but rather a son/daughter of the Greek godfather Zeus. Your final goal is to beat him in the 1000-level (yup!) conquest game.


Powermonger

Bullfrog 1990
Genre: Strategy
Rating: 5/6
Licence: Commercial
System: Amiga

Bullfrog entered the market relatively late - their first own development was Populous in 1989, before, they had just done some conversions of existing games. Surprisingly enough, Peter Molyneux still managed to become a kind of 'cult-designer' even though the industrialization (and thus non-personification) of gaming was already dawning. Must have been because of the pure originality and quality of his design! Between the first two (and only worthy) parts of the famous first god-series, Molyneux designed a somewhat similar, but still again groundbreaking game: Powermonger.


Syndicate

Bullfrog 1993
Genre: Strategy, Action
Rating: 5.5/6
Licence: Commercial
System: PC

The future. Several syndicates control different regions of the world, and there's a war between them. You must take the role of one of the organizations and perform a variety of tasks to "capture" the regions one by one until you control them all.


Syndicate Wars

Bullfrog 1996
Genre: Strategy, Action
Rating: 5/6
Licence: Commercial
System: PC

A small retrospective: In Syndicate, a multitude of competing syndicates battles for world domination. The normal population doesn't know anything about this war, because they are influenced by a mind control chip implanted into each of them. The citizens are nothing more than obedient workers and the control chip shows them an ideal world. The main objective in Syndicate was to destroy the other syndicates and by this achieving world domination.


Theme Hospital

TH1.png
Bullfrog 1997
Genre: Strategy
Rating: 4/6
Licence: Commercial
System: PC

I would like to introduce another 'sequel' of one of the greatest classics of past kids games today. The critical question is whether Theme Hospital can match the 'desease potential' of Theme Park which may very well be one of the more popular games of its times, or whether this is another sequel successfully ruined. Well, this is what you will always learn at the very end ;)


Theme Park

theme01.png
Bullfrog 1994
Genre: Strategy
Rating: 4/6
Licence: Commercial
System: PC

Your rich aunt has just died and you are her heir! Overpowered by joy, you go out to tell off your boss. But then you notice a silly sidenote in the testament: You are only allowed to spend the money on building Theme Parks, and the profits can only be spent on additional parks. So you give in to your fate (you can't go back to your old job anyway after what you've done to your former boss) and start planning!


Tube

Bullfrog 1994
Genre: Sport, Action
Rating: 4/6
Licence: Freeware
System: PC

How should I categorize this game? It was a very close call between action and sports and the only reason I put it here is, that it's supposed to be racing. But a very action-based racer!

First of all, I should point out that this is not a commercial game! It was made by Bullfrog when they were working on High Octane, so Tube is most likely some kind of study object. It has been published in Germany by the well-known magazine PC Player (there are even their logos appearing in the game!). So the gameplay is a very early version of High Octane.
